of the united states, giving his first extended response to questions about yesterday's events in benghazi, libya and in cairo, egypt. >> mr. president, for the first time since 1979, a sitting ambassador, christopher stevens, plus three other americans were killed in the line of duty. we send more than a billion dollars a year to egypt, tens of millions to libya after its liberation. is it time to reconsider foreign aid to countries where many of the people don't want us around? >> well, look, the united states doesn't have an option of withdrawing from the world, and we're the one indispensable nation. countries all around the world look to us for leadership, even countries where sometimes you experience protests. so it's important for us to stay engaged, but, obviously, what happened last night was heartbreaking. and libya in particular is a government that is very friendly towards us. the vast majority of libyans welcomed the united states' involvement. they understand that it's because of us that they got rid of a dictator who would crush their spirits for 40 years. many libyans came
their anger about it they attacked the red cross. the following month the united states announced that u.s. drone strike had killed a libyan who was the second ranking guy in al qaeda central. a guy who went by the moniker al libi which means the libyan. the same group in benghazi responded immediately within 24 hours. they launched another attack that they filmed al qaeda-style, and they ultimately claimed credit for it. this time their target was the u.s. consulate in benghazi, the same u.s. consulate where christopher stevens was killed two nights ago. they hit the consulate with an ied, turned the attack into an al qaeda-style video type of propaganda. the same group hit a british envoy in benghazi with a car bomb. it had the hallmarks of al qaeda inspiration or al qaeda training. they filmed the incident, dropped leaflets. they tried to take as much credit as possible. then on the morning of september 11th, this week, al qaeda central put out a video calling for attacks to avenge that same killing of al libi the group in benghazi had avenged before when it was first announced he was

fall into that category, people like his parents. >> they came back to the united states and my dad had to get help, financial help, the government helped his family to be able to get on their feet again. by the way, that's the way america works. >> there's also video from back when george romney was running for office and facing charges that he was wealthy and simply out of touch. this is mitt romney's mother, lenore, back in 1962. >> you know we've only owned our home for the last four years. he was a refugee from mexico. he was on relief, welfare relief for the first years of his life, but this great country gave him opportunities. >> mitt romney's mom talking about how her husband's family was on government relief when he was a child. so will disclosures like that, governor romney's own father benefited from a program that the son has characterized as populated by quote, victims, help the romney campaign reboot, or will it further knock him off message? mark mckinnen is a conservative who has been sharply critical of mitt romney on this issue and also is a former top campaign adviso
yet regarding this announcement by the united states, but earlier we heard from senior government officials, the prime minister -- the former prime minister now of libya and the speaker of parliament holding a press conference. strong condemnation of the attack vowing to bring the perpetrators to justice and the speaker of the parliament saying this attack coincided with september 11th, that they believe there is a link there, hinting that this was carried out by the islamist extremist groups that operate in eastern libya and saying that libya will not allow that its land be used by these groups to carry out what he described as revenge attacks against the west. at the same time saying that they will need the help of the international community in confronting these groups. people here, anderson, really shocked by what happened. many libyans i've spoken to are really saddened by this attack and hope that the perpetrators are brought to justice. >> jill, the state department, we saw secretary of state clinton condemning the attacks. cnn has confirmed it was a planned attack. the att
? what the united states is now doing? >> you mentioned it briefly, erin. right now, we've learned two navy warships are heading to the coast of libya. both of those are equipped with tomahawk cruise missiles. those are satellite guided and can be programmed to strike a specific target. now, when one got the order, it was just a couple of miles away. the other was a few day's sail. but we know that the u.s. had been conducting surveillance drone flights over libya for several months. over libya for months. today, we learned that surveillance will be much more focused on trying to find the insurgent cell responsible for this attack. so, between the drone surveillance and these two ships, when they get there, that gives the administration some options. >> what's the response on the ground in libya to that, to the fact united states is sending in warships? marines? >> we have not heard a reaction yet from the government here. they have been busy electing a new prime minister amid this chaos and what seems to be a real disaster for the new libya, but i have spoken with ordinary libyans to
their actions. it's never too early for the united states government to condemn attacks on americans and to defend our values. i think it's a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values, that instead when our grounds are being attacked and being breached, that the first response to the united states must be outraged for the sovereignty of our nation. >> trying to get it straight about this, that was the most terrible statement i've heard in a long time. he never sympathized with the mobs. he certainly never sympathized with someone taking the lives of americans and someone serving our government. his people -- not even his people, regular career service people in cairo without checking with washington simply put out a statement. they said that they could share that they are not part of this absolutely outrageous disrespect. >> i think -- i don't know what mark thinks, but that was to me a little painful and infuriating to watch. because i think mitt romney -- i'm going to give him enough credit for knowing that the president in this context didn't apologize for any
and a white america and latino america and asian america. there's a united states of america. >> eight years after the keynote that launched his national career, four years after becoming the nation's first african-american nominee, tonight president barack obama accepts the nomination a second time. tonight the president makes his case for four more years. >> four more years. >> america needs four more years. >> tonight more from the first lady, vice president biden, caroline kennedy, the foo fighters? yes, the foo fighters. weather moved tonight indoors. but after a first night owned by michelle obama, after a second night owned by president clinton, expectations for the finale are sky high. msnbc's primetime coverage of the democratic national convention's final night begins right now. >>> thank you for joining us. i'm rachel maddow here at msnbc headquarters in new york. i'm joined by ed shultz, melissa harris-perry, chris hayes, and the senior strategist steve schmidt. lawrence o'donnell and al sharpton will be joining us in a moment. leading us from the site of the convention is our co
opposition. overseas president obama restored the reputation of the united states within the community. dialling a and collaboration are once again possible with the return of spirit and trust and good will to our foreign policy. of course, there remains much to do. communities across america and countries around the world, life is too hard for too many people. we see their struggle and also our hearts go out to them. in the coming years our hands must continue to reach out to them. after all that remains to be done and at home and abroad, the evidence is overwhelming. president obama is a leader for america and we faison slaught of some of the most complicated and international challenges to confront any u.s. president in modern times. it is up to all of us to make sure that the american people understand exactly what is at stake. and at risk in this election. with president obama in oval office we can make good progress towards becoming a fairer, stronger, more prosperous america. and a nation adjusted to changing and challenging times, hold it true to unchanging principles. a leader
public investments. our good schools, our universities. medicare, security. and that in the united states when those two have met, when individual initiative has met with a common sacrifice and investment by the nation, that's what's created upward mobility. and the ability to reach the american dream in our society that makes america unique. and i put before the nation the clear choice that we have in this election between a leader in barack obama who will -- who has been doing that, making those investments and will in the future and another leader who would scale back from those investments and therefore i think hinder america's ability to be the land of opportunity going forward for everyone. >> where did you come up with that line of the night? i think it was the best line so far in this convention where you said mitt romney said just ask your old man for money when you want to start a business. you said why didn't i think of that? where did you come up with that great sarcasm? >> what i wanted to do was be optimistic but point out the differences. as the first lady pointed out very
the president do over these past several months, i will not divide the united states of america but instead, bring us together. >> he divides us. he tries to divide america, tear america apart. >> to divide our great country. >> and divide the american people. >> i will not divide this nation. >> we don't want to divide america. we want to unite america. >> mitt romney over the course of the campaign. today he went on fox news where he defended what he said on the leaked tape. >> i recognize that those people who are not paying income tax are going to say gosh, this provision that mitt keeps talking about lowering income taxes, that's not going to be real attractive to them and those that are dependent upon government and those that think government's job is to redistribute, i'm not going to get them. i know there's a divide in the country about that view. i know some believe that government should take from some to give to the others. i think the president makes it clear in the tape that was released today that that's what he believes. i think that's an entirely foreign concept. >> the tap
, at age 5 or 6, there was revolution and they came back to the united states. and my dad had to get help, financial help. the government helped his family to be able to get on their feet again. by the way, that's the way america works. we have big hearts. we care for people who have needs. we help get them back, we help lift them up. but then we don't make that a permanent lifestyle. we don't have that become government dependence. we help people, we get them on their feet. >> mitt romney speaking just moments ago at univision's meet the candidate event at the university of miami. somewhat changing his language on immigration reform, talking about his dad as an immigrant from mexico. also defending his january remarks at another point in his speech that he was in favor of self-deportation. a video emerged the today on the campaign trail from when governor romney's father, george romney, was running for governor in the state of michigan. his wife, lenoir, talking to an interviewer about how, in fact, george romney had received welfare relief for a few years when first coming to this count
. he didn't want to listen to us. if i am president of the united states, i want to listen to a job's council. >> here is our political coverage and he is live in the washington bureau. what mr. romney is doing is fund raising. >> exactly. he is lagged behind last month behind the democrats in fund raise trying to make up the several million gap and appearing in two different fund raisers in san diego and los angeles. last month, the gop fell bihind a few million and every dollar is critical. and especially given the high price of political ads on tv. and that's where the war will be waged. in san diego this afternoon. romney blasted the president over the handling of the economy. >> he increased the number of food stamps 15 million. that's more of the population of ohio a randomly selected state. it is a tragedy. it is it a human trag these are brothers and and real americans who are in poverty because of the policies of the president. >> romney heads to colorado tomorrow for a evening rally in denver. >> congressman paul ryan active on the trail. >> he was campaigning in florida p
of the united states. it is one thing to screw up your nominating convention. like this. it's another thing to deny you screwed it up and said you did something that you did not do. when you say you went to the american legion and gave a speech about policy ideas, you did not do that. the press does follow you. you were right about that. the candidate will try to make up for this with a speech on the 9/11 anniversary. if he tries to continue to deny that he made the mistake in the first place, he will have compounded this error gravely. c osteoarthritis pain. imagine living your life with less chronic low back pain. imagine you, with less pain. cymbalta can help. cymbalta is fda-approved to manage chronic musculoskeletal pain. one non-narcotic pill a day, every day, can help reduce this pain. tell your doctor right away if your mood worsens, you have unusual changes in mood or behavior or thoughts of suicide. antidepressants can increase these in children, teens, and young adults. cymbalta is not approved for children under 18. people taking maois or thioridazine or with uncontrolled glauco
to be president of the united states, that would be us, and we are not allowed to have ten years from mitt romney. we are only allowed to see one year of mitt romney's tax returns and a summary of the second year, at least so far. the question of why mr. romney will not release more tax returns has dogged his campaign. over his summer, a laundry list of republicans called on him to release the returns. that followed more republicans who did so during the primaries. harry reid went on a tear loudly and publically accusing mr. romney based on a hearsay source of having paid zero taxes for ten years. mr. romney denies that. he says he's never paid less than 13% in taxes. he does just say that. we're supposed to trust him that that's true. the problem with us just trusting, the problem with us not seeing the evidence of what's in his taxes is that the last time mr. romney asked voters to trust him about what was in his taxes that he didn't want to show, we just had to trust him, was when he told massachusetts voters in 2002 when he was running for governor that he was a massachusetts resident and you
